My wife is absolutely addicted to One Piece, and you see merchandise everywhere, so I think it's the biggest one right now.

Go back and watch some classics? Samurai X and Kenshin, Neon genesis evangalion, Trigun

Perfect Blue is a pretty good mindfuck movie. If you feel like watching a different kind of series then try Nodame Cantabile or Beck. Bleach is OK for the first couple of seasons minus the annoying fillers every other season.

Also death note, Great teacher onizuka (live action is pretty funny too) And the movie, and if you want to watch something old and nerdy but pretty interesting check out Hikaru no Go

naruto shippuden is prolly one of the best imo the fillers dont last that long
kenshin is good, ninja scroll is an awesome movie, gantsu was pretty good

which episode you at for naruto shippuden?

naruto is the only anime and manga that i follow right now, man is it ever good (other than fillers), the anime's gonna be EPIC once it catches up to where the manga is now

bleach hasnt been good since the rescue rukia arc, the story is waaaay too inconsistent, winter war was a joke

death note is super short, but good

^ Top 5 for sure. Gintama & Steins;Gate

Maybe if you can let us know what genres you're into, that would help us make better suggestions.

Some shows that only have one season, but are good because they wrap it up by the end:
Gungrave
Noir
Saikano

-ninja scroll movie (the series is terrible in comparison)
-beck: mongolian chop squad (wicked band/rl type)
-death note (awesome suspense thriller)
-time of eve (philosophic about what robot slaves would do in their off time)
-samurai champloo (hip hop meets samurai)
-afro samurai (sam jackson and samurai)
-evangelion (an emotional kind of series with huge robots and a lot of thinking)

Those are pretty much my standard recommendations and best that I've seen.

+1 to Evangelion, I'd probably toss Freezing, Battle Vixens and Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple in there if you want something with action and bitches. I haven't watched many new series lately, but Mahoromatic and Chobits were two I watched one boring summer, and I tried to pick up Azumanga Daioh, but ran out of time . However, I've heard good things about Clannad if you want something with a crushing amount of feels (ie. drama).

For left field, I'd even throw The Boondocks in there, even if it's not necessarily an anime and was US-made.

wow thanks guys ^^

I remember hearing a lot about death note but i never checked it out ill put that on top of the list

sounds like some of the older ones are still quite popular I dont mind revisiting but id prefer to see what i havent


as for Shippuden i think i stopped when the first filler arc came and i just switched to reading the manga i've actually kept up with it but as a result am not interested in the anime at all


I've actually seen Champloo thats in my list of favourites anything with a real serious, or dramatic+ adventurous side to it i like

I prefer shows that are short like 1 or 2 seasons


thanks for the suggestions ill be sure to watch their trailers and throwing them into my list


someone told me about a show called Monster, it looks interesting but i havent checked it out yet have any of you seen it? any good?

Ghost in the Shell is way, way more serious than any anime I've seen. There's plenty of action, but lots of heavy talk about subjects such as human rights, refugees, right vs wrong, politics, etc. Probably the most serious thing ever put into japanimation, IMHO.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You don't need to watch the movie before you watch the series (SAC).

If you don't have time to go through the whole anime series (which I highly suggest you watch), watch the movie. This series is hyped into astronomical ratings for a reason.


If you're into giant robots, Eureka 7 is awesome as hell.


The first season of FMA in 2006 was nowhere NEAR as epic as this newer one, which followed the plot from the manga.


May look kinda gay, but has an awesome story on epic proportions. Code Geass

I think the newer ones are slightly altered from the original story? Minor character personality and background changes from what I remember. Solid changes for a re-hash though.
